The ever-poetic Joe Clark had this to say about the CMP guide of 2006:

Note - if you are not familiar with Mr. Clark, his writing style can be,
uhm... abrasive at times. None-the-less he does raise some germane issues
and it would be both worthwhile and "complete" if you at least read what he
has to say; Joe is, by most accounts, one of the most knowledgeable
captioning experts in North America, even if he does spend half his day
putting people's noses out of joint.

For what it's worth.
